My boyfriend and I were talking last night about the crazy fast-paced world of the internet, and how so much has changed in the last 15 years. I am 26 years old and spent the first half of my life without the world wide web and the complicated etiquette of online bios and daily statuses. To be frank, i miss those day. My childhood was full of board games, playing in the park with friends and having water fights with the older boys up the street, those were simpler days.
20 or 30 years ago, the only way you could get an impression or gain an opinion on someone would be to meet face to face.Luckily, most people are polite and friendly in person and you would probably go away thinking ‘Sally’ or ‘David’ were a lovely person, and your opinion would remain intact until the next time you met them in person. These days, however, an opinion can be made about ‘Sally’ or ‘David’ in one swift angry status or pretty selfie.
'Ohh that Sally loves herself doesn't she, posting another selfie.'
'Oh David's a miserable guy, constantly moaning about his job.'
This is the instantaneous effects on the modern online form of expression. Sally might actually be self conscious and David might be suffering from problems that no one knows about, but the grain of information we share on the internet is the same grain of information we are getting judged on.
How do we truly know how we are coming across online? Has someone already judged you based on your internet persona before even meeting you in real person? Are we going to live in a world where we know more people online, and spend more time interacting with other peoples online projection of who they want to be, rather than meeting people face to face.
My children’s generation are going to grow up socially incapable of having face to face interaction and they will lack social confidence, this is something that scares me greatly. We need to stop relying so heavily on internet relationships and spend more time going out and meeting new people.
Even internet trolls probably don’t behave the way they do online, the anonymity of the internet breeds hate and fuels the fire for a certain grotesque type of bullying that wouldn’t be accepted in face to face interactions. If you wouldn’t behave a certain way in person, then why cement together a permanent (it is the internet) persona that you would otherwise be ashamed of?
The internet and the resources we have at our fingertips is truly amazing and should be values, but also respected. I do not want someone to judge me without having met me, but it would be naive to think this isn’t happening, what with my Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr spewing out my most random thoughts.
In the future i will try and teach my children to spend more time outside meeting people and truly getting to know them as that is how you get to see the real person. No one is really themselves online, there is planning, the delete button, the copy and pasting of jokes.
You can’t copy and paste in real life. Spend more time on improving the real you not the internet you.
